1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Time to take action on small-class policy (5E Nick Cheng Lai-hon) (SCMP 13 Oct, 2008)

As a student, I undertstand the benefits of small-class teaching. First of all, teachers are able to devote more attention to each student.

Secondly, there are increased opportunities for interaction among students. A lot of learning happens when there are discussions and ideas are shared. I cannot accept the Education Bureau’s explanation that there is a lack of classroom space for small-class teaching.

The problem can be easily overcome, and the bureau should allow schools to have classes of 25 to 30 students. Classroom rotation is also a solution; there are always empty classrooms in schools. In my opinion, a small-class teaching policy should be implemented in all schools immediately.
